Where: Kheprw Institute Kheprw Institute 3549 Boulevard Pl Indianapolis, Indiana 46208

Join us this Friday when we’ll be delving into the world of comic books and hearing from local Afrofuturism visual artists. Starting at 6pm, we have our reading salon and listening lab.

Comic books: Black, Kindred, Victor LaValle’s Destroyer, Strange Fruit, Cyborg, Miles, Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur

Music: Flying Lotus

Food: We Run This

We will hear and build with local creative such as Afrofuturist visual artists, Mechi Shakur and Jamahl Crouch as well as comic book entrepreneurs, Nu Sense Comics. And more…

Afrofuturism is a movement of art, culture and literature that seeks to explore dilemmas faced by black people and theorize possible futures. Afrofuturism will be our framework to re-examine events of the past, critique the present day dilemmas of the African Diaspora, and create a space to imagine and dream of possible futures.

Join us for the Second Friday of each month from 6 to 8pm. As always, there will be food, music and celebration of community.
